Watch this: Dontre Wilson commitment online live

Dontre Wilson, the next Ohio State Buckeye? - Bud Elliott - SB Nation

Watch 4-star RB/WR/ATH Dontre Wilson announce where he will play his college football live.

The time has come to learn where Oregon commit Dontre Wilson will be playing college football the next three-to-five years. Wilson, an all-purpose back from DeSoto, Texas in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, has been a Ducks commit since May 25th of last year. With the speculation that Chip Kelly would leave Oregon for the National Football League, Wilson repeatedly reiterated his commitment was to the program and not the coach. However, after Kelly flirted with the Eagles, recommitted to Oregon, only to depart for the greener shores of the NFL after all, Wilson decided to reopen his commitment and reconsider his options.

On January 17th, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Tom Herman both flew down to Texas to visit with the all-purpose back. A little more than a week later, the 4-star talent took his official visit to Columbus, and by multiple estimates, fell in love with the place. While Oregon apparently put on the full court press in the weeks that followed, from the general consensus of recruiting experts, it sounds like new Ducks head coach Mark Helfrich and co.'s efforts may have been in vain.

In a bit of a twist, Wilson took a last minute official visit to Texas. It likely didn't help that the weekend of his official visit, however, one of his two principle recruiters, Longhorns OC Major Applewhite, found himself embroiled in a sex scandal with a student. While no action has been taken against the offensive coordinator (Applewhite had been punished when the affair came to light some 4 years earlier), it's hard not to imagine that not casting a bit of a light over the weekend. Still, from the sounds of it, Wilson enjoyed his weekend in Austin.

But for the better part of the last 24 hours (especially the last 12), the prevailing wisdom has been that Wilson is all Buckeye. Having received the hard sell from Meyer and Herman on how they can utilize him in their offense likely appealed to Wilson in the same way Chip Kelly's appeals once had. Now it's time to hear which school it is from the horse's mouth.
